In our first episode, Sarah James from Craft Festival talks to wooden surfboard maker James Otter from his Otter Surfboard workshop on the coast of Cornwall.
They discuss his journey to becoming a maker, his love of trees and how making has led him to a career of teaching, taking him in unexpected directions.
They also talk about James' new book, Do/Make, The Power of your Two Hands published by The Do Book Company.
Welcome to The Capital of Craft, where we talk with makers, thinkers and tinkerers about what it means to be a maker and how it can change your life. I’m your host, Sarah James from Craft Festival, craft addict, maker and event producer. Please join me as we delve deep into the stories and lives of makers of all kinds, every Thursday.
